BRICK SALE

In an effort to beautify the grounds in front St. Mary's Church Parish Office, we have begun a bricked area which can be used as a prayer place.  Remember your loved ones in a special way by purchasing a memorial brick(s) to complete this area.  By purchasing a brick you are not only creating an area for prayer and remembering your loved ones but also helping St. Mary to reduce the financial debt.  You can purchase your memorial brick through the Online Giving tab or call the Church Parish Office for more information.

                                                                                                                                                        

 

 

 

TRUNK-OR-TREAT

ST. MARY’S YOUTH GROUP

"Trunk-or-Treat" Registration Form

Thank you for participating in our "Trunk-or-Treat" at St. Mary’s Nativity Church. The Trunk or Treat will be from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Please arrive with your "decked-out-trunk" no later than 4:30 p.m. on October 31, in order to find your assigned parking space and prepare for the arrival of Trick-or-Treaters at 5:30 pm. Guidelines: Your "trunk" can be simple or elaborate…it’s up to you. As you’re dreaming up ideas, consider your trunk as the stage on which you will perform in your coordinating costume with fun scene settings and props. If you are representing a business, perhaps a theme in support of your business would be fun. Need some inspiration? A quick search of "Trunk or Treat" on the Internet and you’ll find dozens of photos that others have posted of their own annual event. The possibilities are endless. Please note: electrical power is not available, battery powered lights are acceptable. Please, no generators. Best decorated Car Judging will take place between 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., winner will be announced at 6:45 p.m. An adult must be with the vehicle at all times. You have to supply your own TREATS, when selecting treats for "Trick-or-Treaters", candy (pre-wrapped & sealed) is certainly an obvious choice but other favorite treats include pencils, pens, erasers, glow sticks, bracelets, bookmarks, stickers, notepads, bouncy balls, and fake tattoos. Please be prepared to accommodate approximately 100 children. Please complete the registration form below and return to St. Mary’s Nativity Church by Tuesday, October 23. You can email your registration to stmarysec@bellsouth.net, fax it to 985-537-3235, drop it off in person or put it in the collection basket at mass.

Please pray this prayer daily for St. Mary's Nativity Church protection in all situations.

 

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

(Pope Francis October 13, 2013)

O Mother of Mercy, Queen of Heaven and earth, Refuge of Sinners, we consecrate ourselves to your Immaculate Heart this day.

We give to you our hearts and souls, our families and all that we have, knowing that you will always lead us closer to Jesus. We renew today the promises of our Baptism and rededicate ourselves to following your model of purity. May we live as good Christians, being faithful to God, the Church and the Pope.

We desire to pray the Rosary, confess our sins, partake in the Holy Eucharist, honor your Immaculate Heart on the first Saturday of each month and work for the conversion of souls. Furthermore, we promise O most Blessed Virgin, that we will zealously spread devotion to you, so that through our consecration to your Immaculate Heart and through your own powerful prayers, Christ the King may reign in all hearts forever. Amen.
